Pizza Mia

Who doesn't love Pizza's! Did you know that 90% of Americans eat pizzas on a regular basis- we included! Veggie pizza's have been our all time favorite. While we have spent numerous late nights at Pizza Hut and dialed Domino's and Papa John's, there is no greater thrill than making our own pizza. Especially, with a store bought pizza base, making pizza is almost a child's play. Pizza's are a food that you can personalize according to individual tastes by varying the toppings, cheese's etc. Have it on a weekend night for a party and your guests will not complain. Pair it with a red wine and get the party rolling. Join us in this great American tradition of Pizza mania.


Preparation time: 4 mins
Cooking time: 16 mins


1 store bought pizza crust(from Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup pizza sauce( we used the Trader Joe's brand)
1/4 green bell peppers cut lengthwise
a few chopped mushrooms
a few sundried tomatoes ( we used the ones dipped in olive oil)
a few black olives ( we used from the can)
a few red onions chopped lengthwise
a few fresh basil leaves coarsely chopped
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
olive oil cooking spray or PAM

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet or a pizza pan with cooking spray. Spray olive oil on both sides of the pizza crust. Place the crust on the baking sheet. With a flat spatula, spread the pizza sauce on the entire base. Add the mushrooms, bell peppers, olives, sundried tomatoes and onions to the base. Spread the mozzarella on top of this layer. Once the oven has reached the temperature, place the baking sheet in it and bake for 14 mins. At the end of 14 mins, take out the baking sheet and add basil leaves. Put it back in the oven and bake for four more mins. Enjoy with a red wine of your choice.

Enjoy!
